Rhodochrosite is a stone for the expression of love, especially the love directed toward the self for the purposes of emotional healing. Rhodochrosite assist one in doing the necessary work of recovering, reliving in releasing the memories of one’s emotional woundings. If there were moments in infancy, childhood, or even past lives in which one experience physical or emotional violence, severe shaming, or was otherwise thrown into a traumatizing emotional situation, the result can be a portion of one’s life force energy that is focused at that point. Inner gifts and talents may be abandoned, repressed and forgotten in an attempt to comply with the immediate demand of the outer situation.
Rhodochrosite works vibrationally to support self healing in these important areas. Rhodochrosite can assist one in moving back in time for the recovering and reliving of the lost memories. It can be used to release the memory and recover the energies that have been bound in the fixation. A lot of times certain traits or gifts can be brought back into the realm of the conscious self and fully utilized. This helps to us to heal and recover our inner child restoring a sense of playfulness and joy in life. (Simmons and Ahsian)
